The Emerging Infections Network electronic mail conference and web page. (1/1030)

In February 1997, the Emerging Infections Network (EIN) established an electronic mail conference to facilitate discussions about emerging infectious diseases and related topics among its members and public health officials. Later that year, the EIN opened its section of the Infectious Diseases Society of America's home page. The EIN Web page was developed to give its members an alternative route for responding to EIN surveys and to facilitate rapid dispersal of EIN reports. The unrestricted portion of the site allows visitors access to information about the EIN and to published EIN reports on specific topics. For the most part, these are brief summaries or abstracts. In the restricted, password-protected portion of the EIN site, members can access the detailed, original reports from EIN queries and the comprehensive listings of member observations. Search functions in both portions of the EIN site enhance the retrieval of reports and observations on specific topics.  (+info)

A plague on your city: observations from TOPOFF. (2/1030)

The United States Congress directed the Department of Justice to conduct an exercise engaging key personnel in the management of mock chemical, biological, or cyberterrorist attacks. The resulting exercise was called "TOPOFF," named for its engagement of top officials of the United States government. This article offers a number of medical and public health observations and lessons discovered during the bioterrorism component of the exercise. The TOPOFF exercise illuminated problematic issues of leadership and decision-making; the difficulties of prioritization and distribution of scarce resources; the crisis that contagious epidemics would cause in health care facilities; and the critical need to formulate sound principles of disease containment. These lessons should provoke consideration of future directions for bioterrorism planning and preparedness at all levels of government and among the many communities and practitioners with responsibilities for national security and public health.  (+info)

New insights on the emergence of cholera in Latin America during 1991: the Peruvian experience. (3/1030)

After a century of absence, in late January 1991, Vibrio cholerae invaded the Western Hemisphere by way of Peru. Although a number of theories have been proposed, it is still not understood how that invasion took place. We reviewed the clinical records of persons attending hospital emergency departments in the major coastal cities of Peru from September through January of 1989/1990 and 1990/1991. We identified seven adults suffering from severe, watery diarrhea compatible with a clinical diagnosis of cholera during the four months preceding the cholera outbreak, but none during the previous year. The patients were scattered among five coastal cities along a 1,000 km coastline. We postulate that cholera vibrios, autochthonous to the aquatic environment, were present in multiple coastal locations, and resulted from environmental conditions that existed during an El Nino phenomenon. Once introduced into the coastal communities in concentrations large enough for human infection to occur, cholera spread by the well-known means of contaminated water and food.  (+info)

Social ecosystem health: confronting the complexity and emergence of infectious diseases. (4/1030)

The emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases and their rapid dissemination worldwide are challenging national health systems, particularly in developing countries affected by extreme poverty and environmental degradation. The expectations that new vaccines and drugs and global surveillance would help reverse these trends have been frustrated thus far by the complexity of the epidemiological transition, despite promising prospects for the near future in biomolecular research and genetic engineering. This impasse raises crucial issues concerning conceptual frameworks supporting priority-setting, risk anticipation, and the transfer of science and technology's results to society. This article discusses these issues and the limitations of social and economic sciences on the one hand and ecology on the other as the main theoretical references of the health sciences in confronting the complexity of these issues on their own. The tension between these historically dissociated paradigms is discussed and a transdisciplinary approach is proposed, that of social ecosystem health, incorporating these distinct perspectives into a comprehensive framework.  (+info)

Ticks and tickborne bacterial diseases in humans: an emerging infectious threat. (5/1030)

Ticks are currently considered to be second only to mosquitoes as vectors of human infectious diseases in the world. Each tick species has preferred environmental conditions and biotopes that determine the geographic distribution of the ticks and, consequently, the risk areas for tickborne diseases. This is particularly the case when ticks are vectors and reservoirs of the pathogens. Since the identification of Borrelia burgdorferi as the agent of Lyme disease in 1982, 15 ixodid-borne bacterial pathogens have been described throughout the world, including 8 rickettsiae, 3 ehrlichiae, and 4 species of the Borrelia burgdorferi complex. This article reviews and illustrate various aspects of the biology of ticks and the tickborne bacterial diseases (rickettsioses, ehrlichioses, Lyme disease, relapsing fever borrelioses, tularemia, Q fever), particularly those regarded as emerging diseases. Methods are described for the detection and isolation of bacteria from ticks and advice is given on how tick bites may be prevented and how clinicians should deal with patients who have been bitten by ticks.  (+info)

Active bacterial core surveillance of the emerging infections program network. (6/1030)

Active Bacterial Core surveillance (ABCs) is a collaboration between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and several state health departments and universities participating in the Emerging Infections Program Network. ABCs conducts population-based active surveillance, collects isolates, and performs studies of invasive disease caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, group A and group B Streptococcus, Neisseria meningitidis, and Haemophilus influenzae for a population of 17 to 30 million. These pathogens caused an estimated 97,000 invasive cases, resulting in 10,000 deaths in the United States in 1998. Incidence rates of these pathogens are described. During 1998, 25% of invasive pneumococcal infections in ABCs areas were not susceptible to penicillin, and 13.3% were not susceptible to three classes of antibiotics. In 1998, early-onset group B streptococcal disease had declined by 65% over the previous 6 years. More information on ABCs is available at ABCs specimens will soon be available to researchers through an archive.  (+info)

Emerging Chagas disease: trophic network and cycle of transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi from palm trees in the Amazon. (7/1030)

A trophic network involving molds, invertebrates, and vertebrates, ancestrally adapted to the palm tree (Attalaea phalerata) microhabitat, maintains enzootic Trypanosoma cruzi infections in the Amazonian county Paco do Lumiar, state of Maranhao, Brazil. We assessed seropositivity for T. cruzi infections in the human population of the county, searched in palm trees for the triatomines that harbor these infections, and gathered demographic, environmental, and socioeconomic data. Rhodnius pictipes and R. neglectus in palm-tree frond clefts or in houses were infected with T. cruzi (57% and 41%, respectively). Human blood was found in 6.8% of R. pictipes in houses, and 9 of 10 wild Didelphis marsupialis had virulent T. cruzi infections. Increasing human population density, rain forest deforestation, and human predation of local fauna are risk factors for human T. cruzi infections.  (+info)

Campylobacter jejuni Infections: update on emerging issues and trends. (8/1030)

Infection with Campylobacter jejuni is one of the most common causes of gastroenteritis worldwide; it occurs more frequently than do infections caused by Salmonella species, Shigella species, or Escherichia coli O157:H7. In developed countries, the incidence of Campylobacter jejuni infections peaks during infancy and again during early adulthood. Most infections are acquired by the consumption and handling of poultry. A typical case is characterized by diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. Obtaining cultures of the organism from stool samples remains the best way to diagnose this infection. An alarming recent trend is the rapid emergence of antimicrobial agent--resistant Campylobacter strains all over the world. Use of antibiotics in animals used for food has accelerated this trend. It is fortunate that complications of C. jejuni infections are rare, and most patients do not require antibiotics. Guillain-Barre syndrome is now recognized as a post-infectious complication of C. jejuni infection, but its incidence is <1 per 1000 infections. Careful food preparation and cooking practices may prevent some Campylobacter infections.  (+info)

Epidemiology studies the patterns, causes and effects of health and disease conditions. It is the cornerstone of public health and informs policy decisions and evidence based practice by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive healthcare. Epidemiologists help with study design, data collection, statistical analysis of data, interpretation and dissemination. Epidemiology helped to develop methodology used in clinical research, public health studies and to a lesser extent basic research in the biological sciences.. Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases are the new infections previously unrecognized infections and old infections reappearing.

Multiple arenaviruses, hemorrhagic fevers, zoonotic and other vector-borne viruses or arboviruses have emerged as global public health problems and some of them now seen in regions such as Europe and North America, where people, even asymptomatic, from different countries of Africa, Latin America and Asia, are carriers of the infection. For these reasons, in endemic and non-endemic regions is important to keep in mind and to know about the clinical and epidemiological aspects, as well diagnostic and therapeutic implications of these viral diseases in different contexts, even more in the context of globalization and migration, that now concern not only from middle-east to Europe, but also in Latin America from Venezuela to other countries in the region ...
Infectious Diseases Disease: conditions that impair normal tissue function Genetic or Metabolic diseases: ex Cystic Fibrosis Disease of aging: ex atherosclerosis Infectious Disease: caused by the invasion of a host by agents whose activities harm the hosts tissues
Emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases are major threats to health globally, and are a One Health issue driven by the combination of natural and anthropogenic factors that affect the interface of animal and human diseases and environmental drivers, including climate and biodiversity changes. Public health has dual roles of assessing risks of emergence or re-emergence of known disease-causing organisms to develop public health policies, and to be prepared to respond to outbreaks of known and previously unknown infectious diseases. Public health has local responsibilities to protect the public within their own jurisdictions, and responsibilities to be part of global responses to, and surveillance of, emerging infectious diseases. Public health activities regarding emerging infectious diseases are, therefore, One Earth as well as One Health issues. Assessing the risk from emerging infectious diseases involves identifying and modelling environmental risk factors and drivers for disease ...
Infectious diseases are responsible for a quarter of all deaths in the world annually, the vast majority occurring in low- and middle-income countries [1]. There are diseases such as SARS and flu that exhibit some distinct features such as rapid spatial spread and visible symptoms [2]. These features, associated with the increasing trend of globalization and the development of information technology, are expected to be shared by other emerging/re-emerging infectious diseases. It is therefore important to refine classical mathematical models to reflect these features by adding the dimensions of massive news coverage that have great influence not only on the individual behaviours but also on the formation and implementation of public intervention and control policies [2].. Peoples response to the threat of disease is dependent on their perception of risk, which is influenced by public and private information disseminated widely by the media. While government agencies for disease control and ...

Dr. Khan is the developer of bio.DIASPORA, which enables the study of global air traffic patterns and applies this knowledge to help the worlds cities and countries better prepare for and respond to emerging infectious diseases threats. Dr. Brownstein is a co-founder of HealthMap, an online global disease-tracking and mapping tool which leverages information sources on the Internet to detect infectious disease outbreaks around the world.. For the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Dr. Khan analyzed recent worldwide air traffic patterns during the month of February, to predict where passengers travelling into Vancouver would be originating from. His team found that nearly two-thirds of all international passengers traveling to Vancouver came from just 25 cities. Dr. Brownsteins team then concentrated its infectious disease surveillance efforts on those cities, which it continues to do on an hourly basis during the course of the Winter Games (a real-time view of this analysis is available online at ...
In recent years, with the increase in global travel, interaction, and climate change, the distinctions between domestic and global diseases have become difficult to ascertain. This Research Topic will describe Emerging Infectious Diseases (including re-emerging infectious diseases) and Vector Borne Diseases linked to this globalization and climate change. One such example affecting global populations is the Avian Influenza H7N9 found in food sources. Global climate change has also blurred the classical niche demarcations for vectors such as mosquitoes, which are able to carry diseases such as Zika and Dengue, as these invasive species have been found further north of their past territories.Therefore, this Research Topic will focus on global challenges in the identification, transfer, spread, treatment and containment of such diseases and new outbreaks. It will include but not be limited to the following topics:• Increases in population, travel, urbanization, and population density: With an increase in
The global cost of communicable diseases is expected to rise. SARS has put the world on alert. We have now Avian Flu on the watch. Recognizing the global nature of threats posed by new and re-emerging infectious diseases and the fact that many recent occurrences originated in the Asia Pacific regions, there has been an increased interest in learning and knowing about disease surveillance and monitoring progresses made in these regions. Such knowledge and awareness is necessary to reduce conflict, discomfort, tension and uneasiness in future negotiations and global cooperation.... ...

This concept is supported by a number of recent reports from international organizations. The report of the joint World Health Organisation (WHO) and DFID UK Animal Health Programme meeting held in Geneva in September 2005 focused on endemic zoonoses. WHO has drawn attention to the relationship between poverty and the emergence or re-emergence of zoonotic diseases, which are largely neglected. The European Technology Platform for Global Animal Health (ETPGAH) also recognised the importance of neglected zoonoses and identified the need to facilitate and accelerate the development and distribution of effective tools for controlling animal diseases of major importance to both Europe and the rest of the world.. The poor in least developed countries bear a disproportionately high burden of disease through reasons of access to and affordability of healthcare, and vulnerability. The burden of zoonoses falls especially heavily on poor people because (i) they are at greater risk of contracting these ...
Methodology. Both my population pyramid mapping analyses and my 3D mapping techniques can be applied to this work.. The method I used for analyzing population pyramid age-gender relationships with a disease helps pinpoint those age groups most likely to be impacted by specific diseases we pay heed to. Age is important due to the possibility that some diseases, like the Asian Flu of the early 1900s with fears returning most recently, are fatal mostly to adults instead of the two normally nighest risk groups-the young, and the old. With increased life spans now possible for chronic disease victims we could possibly add the sick and disabled to the groups of those most likely impacted in some morbid or mortal way by infectious disease.. This page also applies my grid mapping/zip-mapping small area techniques with False 3D images, still or rotating, used to present the most important results. Diseases of a foreign nature have features that can only be effectively displayed using the 3D modeling. ...

Emerging diseases include HIV infections, SARS, Lyme disease, Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E. coli), hantavirus, dengue fever, and West Nile virus.. Re-emerging diseases are diseases that reappear after they have been on a significant decline. Re-emergence may happen because of a breakdown in public health measures for diseases that were once under control. They can also happen when new strains of known pathogens appear. Human behavior affects re-emergence. For example, overuse of antibiotics has led to drug-resistant pathogens and allowed a return of diseases that once were able to be treated with drugs.. Re-emerging diseases include malaria, tuberculosis, cholera, pertussis, influenza, pneumococcal disease, and gonorrhea.. Travelers should be aware that some diseases thought to be under control in the United States may be experiencing an outbreak in other countries. Ask for information and take precautions before being exposed to one of these diseases.. ...
Infectious diseases are also known as contagious diseases, and there are a number of them out there today. Most infectious diseases are quite curable while some are not.
Results As of 22 April 2020, cumulative incidences of a first acute hospital admission for covid-19 were 15.6 per 100 000 cohort members in northern California, 23.3 per 100 000 in southern California, and 14.7 per 100 000 in Washington. Accounting for censoring of incomplete hospital stays among those admitted by 9 April 2020, the estimated median duration of stay among survivors was 9.3 days (with 95% staying 0.8 to 32.9 days) and among non-survivors was 12.7 days (1.6 to 37.7 days). The censoring adjusted probability of ICU admission for male patients was 48.5% (95% confidence interval 41.8% to 56.3%) and for female patients was 32.0% (26.6% to 38.4%). For patients requiring critical care, the median duration of ICU stay was 10.6 days (with 95% staying 1.3 to 30.8 days). The censoring adjusted case fatality ratio was 23.5% (95% confidence interval 19.6% to 28.2%) among male inpatients and 14.9% (11.8% to 18.6%) among female inpatients; mortality risk increased with age for both male and ...
Wildlife-associated diseases and pathogens have increased in importance; however, management of a large number of diseases and diversity of hosts is prohibitively expensive. Thus, the determination of priority wildlife pathogens and risk factors for disease emergence is warranted. We used an online questionnaire survey to assess release and exposure risks, and consequences of wildlife-associated diseases and pathogens in the Republic of Korea (ROK). We also surveyed opinions on pathways for disease exposure, and risk factors for disease emergence and spread. For the assessment of risk, we employed a two-tiered, statistical K-means clustering algorithm to group diseases into three levels (high, medium and low) of perceived risk based on release and exposure risks, societal consequences and the level of uncertainty of the experts opinions. To examine the experts perceived risk of routes of introduction of pathogens and disease amplification and spread, we used a Bayesian, multivariate normal order

The study of emerging or reemerging infectious diseases is a research of foremost relevance in French Guiana. The high diversity of strains naturally occurring in the environment with wild hosts or vectors intersects with a number of key societal issues. Cutting-edge research in this domain will help improving the health of the population in French Guiana, and it should also provide important clues for the management of emerging diseases elsewhere in the tropics.. The CEBA contributes to this research through innovative actions and programs. For instance, human pathogens provide an excellent example of pathogenic microbiome within humans. The presence or the emergence / reemergence of pathogens may be expressed differently among the human populations that are affected and this topic is studied both from a clinical and evolutionary standpoints by the CEBA..

To understand the need to look at animal health in order to forecast threats to human health, you cant do better than the map Ive inserted above (because Blogger, annoyingly, wont let me put it below). It has appeared in various forms in various publications for about 10 years but originates I think from the IOMs Emerging and Reemerging Diseases report in the early 90s. (This iteration comes from the One Health Initiative website.) It depicts the movement of new diseases from animals to humans over about 30 years. Its up-to-date through SARS and through the 2003-05 movement of H5N1 avian flu around the world. Im sure H1N1 will be added soon. How many of those outbreaks could we have shortcircuited if we had been warned of their threat in good time? ...

A team of researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, has discovered a new disease mechanism in the C9orf72 gene, which is the most common genetic type of ALS.
New drugs to treat people are constantly being developed. This is necessary because new diseases are constantly emerging, and old ones are becoming resistant to currently used drugs because of selection pressure caused by the use of those drugs. There are also still many conditions for which there is no treatment available.

Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) from patients with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) fail to produce microbicidal concentrations of reactive oxygen species (ROS) due to mutations in NOX2. Patients with CGD suffer from severe, life-threatening infections and inflammatory complications. Granulibacter bethesdensis is an emerging Gram-negative pathogen in CGD that resists killing by PMN of CGD patients (CGD PMN) and inhibits PMN apoptosis through unknown mechanisms. Microarray analysis was used to study mRNA expression in PMN from healthy subjects (normal PMN) and CGD PMN during incubation with G. bethesdensis and, simultaneously, in G. bethesdensis with normal and CGD PMN. We detected upregulation of antiapoptotic genes (e.g., XIAP and GADD45B) and downregulation of proapoptotic genes (e.g., CASP8 and APAF1) in infected PMN. Transcript and protein levels of inflammation- and immunity-related genes were also altered. Upon interaction with PMN, G. bethesdensis altered the expression of ROS ...

Here, we analyse human infectious disease outbreaks across the world, spanning multiple decades. Our results provide new descriptions of the global disease-scape and our new dataset, now available for others to use, will help advance the field of disease biogeography.. While outbreaks represent an increase in the number of disease cases beyond expectations for a given population, emerging human infectious diseases are further characterized by novelty: for example, diseases that have undergone recent evolutionary change, entered the human population for the first time, or have been newly discovered [5,9]. The number of outbreaks, like the number of emerging infectious diseases, appears to be increasing with time in the human population both in total number and richness of causal diseases. Although our finding implies that outbreaks are increasing in impact globally, outbreak cases per capita appear to be declining over time. Our data suggest that, despite an increase in overall outbreaks, global ...

Of all the known zoonotic tick borne diseases, tick borne encephalitis caused by TBE virus (TBEV) is the most common tick borne disease transmitted to humans in Europe and eastern and central Asia. It is now endemic in 27 European countries, and has been declared an international public health problem. Since the virus is also transmissible through raw milk and dairy products of infected goats, sheep or cattle TBEV has the potential to make a significant impact on food security and regional economy, especially in areas using traditional methods of milk collection and processing and the use of un pastorised milk for the production of typical local dairy products. We analysed pattern of TBE emergence in northern Italy combining eco-epidemiological long term and extensive surveys. Major drivers of disease emergence were identified in changes in forest management and the rise of ungulate population. Spatial and temporal variation in infection risk is driven by the interaction of several factors, ...

This issue of the ECDC Communicable Disease Threats Report (CDTR) covers the period 5-11 June 2016 and includes updates on Zika virus, an outbreak of enterovirus and yellow fever.
Recent events clearly illustrate a continued vulnerability of large populations to infectious diseases, which is related to our changing human-constructed and natural environments. A single person with multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in 2007 provided a wake-up call to the United States and global public health infrastructure, as the health professionals and the public realized that todays ease of airline travel can potentially expose hundreds of persons to an untreatable disease associated with an infectious agent. Ease of travel, population increase, population displacement, pollution, agricultural activity, changing socioeconomic structures, and international conflicts worldwide have each contributed to infectious disease events. Today, however, nothing is larger in scale, has more potential for long-term effects, and is more uncertain than the effects of climate change on infectious disease outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics. We discuss advances in our ability to predict these events and, ...

Heterogeneity in the parameters governing the spread of infectious diseases is a common feature of real-world epidemics. It has been suggested that for pathogens with basic reproductive number R0,1, increasing heterogeneity makes extinction of disease more likely during the early rounds of transmission. The basic reproductive number R0 of the introduced pathogen may, however, be less than 1 after the introduction, and evolutionary changes are then required for R0 to increase to above 1 and the pathogen to emerge. In this paper, we consider how host heterogeneity influences the emergence of both non-evolving pathogens and those that must undergo adaptive changes to spread in the host population. In contrast to previous results, we find that heterogeneity does not always make extinction more likely and that if adaptation is required for emergence, the effect of host heterogeneity is relatively small. We discuss the application of these ideas to vaccination strategies. ...
DUMFRIES and Galloway MSP Jim Hume has called for the Scottish Government to act after Schmallenberg virus (SBV) was detected close to the Scottish border.
On the technical side, I had some ideas. Wonder if they made sense and if any of these tools (apps) already exist:. One of the big tools in the response is transmission tracking and isolation. Going ahead this seems a common part of the response to any pandemic. But from reading the news this seems to be still done in a relatively primitive way. These days most everyone has a smartphone. With a combination of GPS and perhaps blue tooth shouldnt it be possible to create a list of potential contacts? This way, the moment a positive for an infection is detected (through a symptomatic case, or random screening etc.) instantaneously a list of probables for infection transmission could be generated and then triaged. Not sure how much damage reduction we already can do but surely for future pandemics this sort of thing can squelch the spread right at the start? Perhaps, GPS alone will generate a moving circle too large for this to make good use of; typical transmission tracking would want to only ...

The 4 year COST-Action proposal: Anti-Microbial Coating Innovations to prevent infectious diseases (AMICI), has received funding to start work in November 2015. Professor Bill Keevil has been nominated by the UK Department of Business, Innovation & Skills as one of the two UK Representatives on the Management Committee of AMICI.. Infections and infectious diseases are a continuous threat to human health. According to the European Centre for Disease prevention and Control (ECDC), over 4 million people are estimated to acquire a HealthCare Associated Infection (HCAI). The AMICI-consortium is convinced that new methods, additional or alternatively to an appropriate use of disinfectants and antibiotics, are required to reduce microbial activity, associated infections and the increase of Antimicrobial Resistance.. A potential and promising weapon against bacterial growth and possibly the development of multi-drug resistant bacteria has been found in AntiMicrobial (nano)-Coatings (AMC). In coatings ...

Infectious diseases are commonly regarded as a distinct category, with different causes and patterns than chronic or genetic disease. But in fact there are many varieties of genetic susceptibility to infection, the subject of this book, which will be divided into three sections: 1) concepts and methods, 2) genes and pathophysiologic mechanisms, and 3) infectious agents and diseases.

  • The third week of the Emerging trends in global health course has focused on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) which is a topic particularly relevant to the physiotherapy / physical therapy profession. (
  • The four main NCDs are cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes and chronic lung diseases. (
  • To address this growing issue The Political Declaration on Noncommunicable Diseases was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2011 with the specified aim to to reduce premature deaths caused by NCDs by 25% by 2025. (
  • In this module we consider the rise of non-communicable (NCDs) diseases across countries, along with mental disorders and disability. (
  • Despite evidence of links between non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and development, these diseases and their risk factors were not included in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). (
  • Three major trends in global governance-the rise of emerging economies, the increase in multi-bi financing, and institutional proliferation-have implications for whether NCDs will be included in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda. (
  • As the 2010 Global Burden of Disease study confirmed, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) (primarily cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease, and diabetes) are now the major cause of death and disability across the world [1] . (
  • First, unlike most acute infectious diseases, the often chronic and debilitating course of NCDs impedes social and economic development, deepening inequalities, and initiates a cycle of disability and health costs-related poverty [3] , [4] . (
  • Over the past few years India has seen a shift in its burden of disease, with a relatively large decrease in the burden of communicable disease and an increase in non-communicable diseases (NCDs). (
  • 12 Such a demographic shift will continue to increase the burden of NCDs such as stroke, cancer, and ischaemic heart disease. (
  • When we talk about NCDs, very often we mean chronic diseases, irrespective of the origin. (
  • This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for research training program planning invites submissions from low- and middle-income country (LMIC) institution(s) with existing research and research training capacity in chronic, non-communicable diseases and disorders (NCDs). (
  • This threat comes from non-communicable diseases (NCDs), like cancer and diabetes. (
  • As with communicable diseases (CDs), non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, hypertension, and cancer are serious problems in emerging countries. (
  • These are the chronic, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, sickle-cell disease and kidney disease, whose collective toll is rising rapidly. (
  • The World Health Organisation predicts that by 2030, deaths from NCDs in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) will surpass those for deaths due to infectious diseases. (
  • The answer is non-communicable diseases (NCDs): cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancers and lung diseases. (
  • BACKGROUND: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the largest cause of premature death worldwide. (
  • It also investigates and exposes the new and emerging environmental triggers of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). (
  • Such diseases, conditionally labeled as diseases of affluence ( Nutrition Health Topics, 2016 ), are growing rapidly in the developing countries, making almost 80% of deaths due to NCDs ( New WHO report: deaths from noncommunicable diseases on the rise, with developing world hit hardest, 2011 ). (
  • Recent outbreaks of measles in the U.S. have brought heightened attention to this highly contagious disease. (
  • Surveillance of epidemiologically important diseases provides critical information to clinicians and public health officials for use in measuring disease incidence in communities, recognizing disease outbreaks, assessing prevention and control measure effectiveness, allocating public health resources, and further clarifying the epidemiology of new and emerging pathogens ( 1 ). (
  • CDI also publishes timely reports of communicable disease outbreaks and other articles dealing with a wide range of subjects relevant to the surveillance and control of communicable diseases in Australia. (
  • In developing countries, the concern is to detect communicable disease outbreaks early and to stop their mortality, spread, and potential harm to trade and tourism. (
  • In addition, in March 2015, CDC published revised criteria for use of federal public health travel restrictions (PHTRs) in the Federal Register so that these tools could be used to prevent travel of persons exposed to a communicable disease of public health concern and to support enhanced public health response to communicable disease outbreaks ( Table 1 ) ( 3 ). (
  • Case studies highlight innovations in health education, working with people with disabilities, partnerships in response to disease outbreaks, and health programs. (
  • Among STEC, O157:H7 is the classical serotype that was first associated with enterohaemorrhagic diseases in the early 1980's as a cause of serious outbreaks and sporadic cases of illness. (
  • Participants will hear from airport officials and public health experts who were involved with past outbreaks, discuss experiences and preparedness for future outbreaks, and exchange ideas with thought leaders on emerging trends and challenges. (
  • Unkel S , Farrington C , Garthwaite PH , Robertson C , Andrews N . Statistical methods for the prospective detection of infectious disease outbreaks: a review. (
  • Since the 17th century, several major outbreaks of the disease have occurred in the Americas, Africa, and Europe. (
  • In August 2014, the World Health Organization declared the Ebola virus disease outbreak in West Africa a public health emergency of international concern. (
  • Citing statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), which saw deaths from non-communicable diseases increasing by 17 per cent in the next decade, he said that in Africa, that number would jump by 24 per cent. (
  • for example, we direct studies of malaria and tuberculosis susceptibility in sub-Saharan Africa, and we are investigating the role of MIF alleles in different autoimmune and infectious diseases. (
  • Think of disease in Africa and you maybe think of malaria. (
  • While the world has focused on the traditional causes of premature death in Africa - communicable diseases such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis, malnutrition, road and other accidents and political conflicts - a column of other types of killers has been gaining ground. (
  • Yellow fever (YF) is a zoonotic flaviviral disease endemic and epidemic in tropical regions of South America and Africa. (
  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO), YF remains an important public health problem in Africa and is considered an emerging disease ( 9 ). (
  • It is thought that the disease originated in Africa and spread to the Americas in the 17th and 18th centuries through trading ships. (
  • The disease originated in Africa and spread to South America in the 17th century with the Spanish and Portuguese importation of enslaved Africans from sub-Saharan Africa. (
  • And conclusions -- Introduction -- Epidemiology of communicable diseases in Europe, 2009. (
  • The Annual Epidemiological Report 2014 gives an overview of the epidemiology of communicable diseases of public health significance in Europe, drawn from surveillance information on the 52 communicable diseases and health issues for which surveillance is mandatory in the European Union and European Economic Area countries. (
  • High levels of economic activity can foster the spread of communicable diseases through frequent person-to-person interactions. (
  • PHTRs are mechanisms to mitigate spread of communicable diseases and might be critical in enhancing health security during epidemics. (
  • Committee to Review the Department of Defense Global Emerging Infections Surveillance and Response System, Medical Follow-Up Agency, Institute of Medicine. (
  • Forum on Emerging Infections, Board on Global Health, Institute of Medicine. (
  • Arthropods such as ticks , mites , fleas , and lice , can also cause human disease, which conceptually are similar to infections, but invasion of a human or animal body by these macroparasites is usually termed infestation . (
  • Diseases caused by helminths , which are also macroparasites, are sometimes termed infestations as well, but are sometimes called infections. (
  • [4] The branch of medicine that focuses on infections is referred to as infectious disease . (
  • Other viral infections and parasitic diseases are also associated with population movements. (
  • Expansion in international travel and commerce in food and medicinal biologic products provides another potential source of communicable diseases such as hepatitis and other bloodborne infections. (
  • aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Infections. (
  • Also, high quality research contributions describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Infections are cordially invited for presentation at the conference. (
  • ICSTDI 2022 has teamed up with the Special Journal Issue on Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Infections . (
  • Particularly in paediatrics, often health systems are so overwhelmed with acute diseases like malaria, respiratory infections or diarrhoea, and already struggle to cope with that. (
  • We focus significant attention on the role of host cytokine, MIF, which we cloned in 1993, in the development of the inflammatory complications of different infections and autoimmune diseases. (
  • Emerging Microbes & Infections , 7(1), 1-14. (
  • According to the World Health Organization an estimated 7 out of 10 deaths worldwide are due to non-communicable diseases (NCD), with over 80 per cent of them occuring in low- and middle-income countries. (
  • Of 57 million global deaths in 2008, 36 million, or 63%, were due to noncommunicable diseases. (
  • Infectious diseases resulted in 9.2 million deaths in 2013 (about 17% of all deaths). (
  • 6 to 10% of all deaths from non communicable disease. (
  • In industrialized countries, where deaths due to communicable diseases have greatly decreased over the past century, the concern is to prevent diseases from entering and causing an outbreak or reemergence. (
  • Further knowledge about diseases of bioterrorism concern and emerging infectious diseases may lead to more effective forms of therapy to prevent disease-related illnesses and deaths. (
  • The 65-paragraph text, the centrepiece of the two-day meeting, acknowledged that the global burden and threat of non-communicable diseases "constitutes one of the major challenges for development in the twenty-first century" and notes the Assembly's profound concern at the sharp increase in deaths and disability they caused. (
  • This reflects in part the reduction in deaths from infectious disease, which is something to celebrate - but not if we now risk losing these hard fought gains. (
  • RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC - Non-communicable diseases - such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease and diabetes - are responsible for more than 36 million deaths across the globe each year. (
